How To Install Dolphin Gamecube Emulator in Ubuntu

Everyone loves and wants to play their old Gamecube games. Since Ubuntu doesn't have a great selection of games to choose from right off the bat, its best to enjoy games on Emulators. I have heard on a number of Ubuntu forums that Gamecube emulators don't work right. This is obviously coming from people that don't have a good machine to run this stuff. Here are the commands that you should run if you want to install a gamecube emulator for all your gaming goodness. Open a terminal and type these commands in...

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glennric/dolphin-emu

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install dolphin-emu

After that you should have the Gamecube emulator Dolphin installed. This runs most games flawlessly and I recommend everyone give it a shot. Of course you will need the ISO images of all the games you wish to play and I can't help you find places to download them, that is illegal. Instead try to find the roms your self. Here is a hint, check torrent sites. I hope this has helped you and have fun playing game cube games in Ubuntu!

  1. I tryed to open a game but it wont open on the Emulator and I did all the steps on everything, Im just abit confused with the PowerIso there's something I have to do with it but I dont know what, Can you help?

  2. You shouldn't need to use poweriso, just put the ISO or image file into a games directory, and make sure you put the games directory in the options that point to the location that contains your ISO file(s). After you have done this Dolphin emu should take care of the rest. What kind of operating system are you using is it Ubuntu?
